Superb Supermini

I bought this car used at a year old with 16500 miles on the clock from my local Renault Dealer. The Clio was to be a second car, shared between me and my wife for us to drive in and around the city.

Over the 4 Years and 37000 extra miles we added - taking the diesel Clio to almost 55000 miles the Clio performed faultlessly. Along with superb reliability, the Clio dCi also offered cheap miles as the car achieved around 68 miles per gallon and the car was free to tax!
The Clio was also extremely easy to drive and park, useful as it was mainly used in the city.

So, any negatives to the Clio?
Well, the interior isn’t the best built with some cheap plastics around the place, however the seats are comfortable and you can easily do a long distance in the Clio.
Other than that, rear visibility is not great and the touchscreen can be a little bit laggy.

All in all though the Renault Clio is one of the best superminis, from my experience it is much better than the Vauxhall Corsa and Peugeot 208 and therefore I would recommend the Renault Clio.
